been vacillating between the two, and you can't really forecast with that kind of specificity, within 20 miles or so. so we have been seeing reason most hoff the day but now it's going to remain all snow. so now we'll start to see it accumulating. however we're not going to be seeing the strengthening of the snow until 8:00 or 9:00 tonight, and very heavy until 5:00 tomorrow morning. still dealing with this across much of new england, though. it will be out of there by 2:00 or 3:00 tomorrow afternoon. at the airport tomorrow, in problems as well. >> a busy season at the fox weather center. thousands of flights already cancelled across the country. hardest hit, new york liberty airport in new jersey. that's where you'll fine the wwor reporter. what's the latest? >> it's a ghost town here at new york liberty airport. there are usually a ton of people here tonight. none. and we haven't been hit by the

>> what did you just say, ray? after four years on the job and more than 300 billion taxpayer dollars for transportation projects, ray la hood pushing to spend even more cash on what he calls a bold plan to fix america's roads and he says you'll be on board. >> i tone think you'd be turning off people in america because they know america is one big pothole right now. >> why didn't we fill the potholes instead of spending stimulus money on things like the ramps to nowhere. you've got to be kidding me. e-mail us or tweet us at team
cavuto. >> meanwhile, to virginia and a bat over the governor's transportation plan there. it would eliminate the gas tax and replace it with a small hike in state sales tax. the republican governor on where things stan right now. governor, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, sir. >> you want to raise the state sales tax but eliminate the gas tax. give us the numbers. >> well, we do have a problem with infrastructure in america. you heard the secretary's comments and you're right. only 6% of the stimulus money was spent on infrastructure, and the rest was spent on things that didn't help much. so we have a problem and it's the gasoline tax on a state of decline because of inflation, alternative fuels and cafe standards and so forth, and we have the most congested area in america, northern virginia. so we're trying to build infrastructure. the gas tax is going to keep declining so we're suggesting let's get rid of and it replace it with a sales tax that froze
with the economy. >> let's tell the viewers the numbers. the virginia gas tax is 17-1/2 cents per gallon. nationwide it's 18.4. you're saying eliminate the 17-1/2 sentences per gallon state sales tax and add .08% on sales of everything. is that right? >> that's right. what happens is we're not the lowest gas prices in the country, everybody is going to want to buy gas in virginia and we replace it on a revenue neutral basis. a hike in sales tax -- and the sales grows because of economic growth and the gas tax goes down. we're also doing other things. using general fun, couple other things, small increase in the registration fee. all together, $800 million a year which will go a long way to fixing our infrastructure and it's quality of life, family
time, job creation. >> governor, there are a out love us saying, aren't we raising taxes? aren't you raising taxes by taking away one tax but giving the people of virginia another tax that over the course of time will probably cost them more now. >> well, i'm saying it's not. it's a revenue neutral conversion. everybody knows the gas tax is a long-term decline, and isn't going to be sufficient, and replacing it on a revenue neutral basis today with a different type of tack that grows not because it's a tax increase but because it's economic growth. that's going to grow at 4 or 5% a year. so it's the right change. a lot of us governors around the country are looking at tax reform, tax changes to update us to the modern economy, but we're using a huge chunk of general funds, which means we are cutting spending in other areas to free up the priority of transportation, and i think that's a conservative approach. >> governor, turn the page a little bit here. you delivered a state of the union response at one opinion. senator marco rubio will be
delivering the next one. both in spanish and english. what do you think? give us some thoughts on that new turn of events. >> well, marco is a great choice. one of most refreshing, positive speakers in the country. you're never going to compete with the president of the united states. who speaks for an hour and ten minutes when you have ten minutes to give a response. you're he's speaking to the well of the husband and you're looking at a camera. so make sure you're a happy, positive conservative because you want to attract people the team. two, spell out in simple terms why our idea works and lib rappism fails, and explain why these ideas will translate into results that will make the quality of life better for all americans. if he can do that in ten minutes, especially with the middle class, it will be a good night. >> somebody said, marco rubio,
he speaks conservativism as a first lange. >> our ideas work, and there's don't, and it's obvious when you're 16 trillion in debt and unemployment rate near 8% this, president's idea haven't, and the republican ideas that marco rubio trumpets better than anything, i think do work and can explain it well. and it's a good choice with him. >> thank you for joining us, sir. have a great weekend. >> okay. thanks, sir. all eyes on the blizzard bearing down some 50 million people in its path, including hurricane sandy victims. remember when president obama promised those sandy victims this? >> we don't have any patience for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape. >> why is one hurricane sandy victim doing this? you're about to find out because she is here next.
so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work. for over 75 years people ...with geico... ohhh...sorry!. director's voice: here we go. from the top. and action for over 75 years people have saved money with gecko so.... director's voice: cut it! ...what...what did i say? gecko? i said gecko? aw... for over 75 year...(laughs. but still trying to keep it contained) director's voice: keep it together. i'm good. i'm good. for over 75...(uncontrollable laughter). what are you doing there? stop making me laugh.
we're keeping a close eye on the blizzard, whipping up trouble across the northeast, and the timing couldn't be worse for many victims of hurricane sandy still trying to rebuild. check this out. sandy victim so fed up with fema and red tape, she wrapped her house in red tape and posted signs writtenning the government for its response. remember when president obama said this. >> we're not going to tolerate red tape and bureaucracy. >> no bureaucracy, no red tape. >> we don't have any patient for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape, and we want to make sure we're figuring out a way to get to yes as opposed to no.
>> been hearing a lot of nos lately. sam, show the pictures of your house. you did this in direct response to president obama? >> yes. he went on television before the storm was even over, saying how it was a very dangerous storm, but the aid and the resources needed to get the people, there would be no red tape. they would cut through the bureaucracy, and he lied to us. >> what are the issues? has anyone told you when you're going to see aid or financial help? >> we're not looking for aid or financial help. we're looking for what we paid for. we paid for flood policies that basically don't exist. we paid money year after year, and the insurance companies are telling us, well, it doesn't work that way. >> tell us about that. you paid your flood insurance, paid your bill every year. >> every year. >> didn't default, paid your bills. why are the saying you don't deserve whatever -- to be made hole? >> that's their whole idea.
the whole idea is we're going to make you whole. their idea is if you had four feet or five feet in of water in your house, we're going to cut away what got ruined and make you hole again but our house and many houses in my neighborhood have been deemed up inhabitable and we need to raise the house above the flood plain and rebuild and it we can't do that with the insurance companies are giving us. the other neighbors are just as angry, just as upset, tired. people want to come home. they can't come home. they don't have the money to come home because there are delays between the insurance companies, between fema, between mortgage companies. people trying to get checks from their mortgage companies. nobody is communicating with anyone, and the people who lived in these homes are the ones who are suffering. >> has anyone taken up the cause and put red tape on their homes? >> yeah. i've been driving around the neighborhood and asking people
on facebook and through feigns to put red ribbons -- i don't care if people put on red shoelaces. >> can we roll a sound bite of mayor bloomberg? i want your response. >> we expect that most of niece programs will be underway by at it april or early may. >> wore not just going to send out checks. well make sure everything is well-documented, that people qualify for the loans. it will take at bit of time. >> what do you want to say the mayor? >> he is talking loans and grants. we're talking money we paid, high premiums that people in my neighborhood have paid for years and years, and they want a return on their payments. if you pay car insurance you get into a car accident, your expectation is that your car is going to be repaired. if your car is totaled, your expectation is you're going to get a new car. if your house is totaledow the expectation you'll belt the funding to build a new hose, and by funding i mean the premiums we paid.
>> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> coming up, police scouring california mountains for an ex-police officer accused of killing three. the latest on the massive manhunt. and huckabee on benghazi, now going straight to the top. >> are you surprised that the president of the united states never called you, secretary panetta, and says, how is it going?
>> to california where a massive manhunt continues for an ex-los angeles police officer accused of killing three people. we're in big bear lake with the latest. reporter: conditions worsening here. the weather just really piling it on. the snow keeps coming down. they're expecting eight inches and it's well over that. this drift is nearly 12 inches deep and it's really heavy going for the authorities as they continue to hunt down their suspect, who has already killed -- they believe already killed one cop, and injured two others, and killed two other innocent people, and the real problem here is not just the weather, but also just the mountainous terrain over which the teams that are being brought in actually have to deal with. this is -- earlier on we spoke to the sheriff and the described the territory we're in and exactly how the search is going underway. take a listen.
>> about eight square miles is what we're searching. about 200 empty cab bens we're -- cabins we're checking, using the s.w.a.t. guys, the snow cats and atvs with chains to get to those areas. we're methodically searching each building. reporter: and the search for chris dorner continues. no idea whether he really is still on the mountain or indeed when they may find him but the authorities saying they are not going to give up until they know one or do the other. that is, find him. >> the president and outgoing defense secretary leon panetta together again today. what about when this was happening? we got our answer yesterday. >> are you prized that the president of the united states never called you, secretary panetta, and said, how is it going? >> you know, normally in these
situations, d. >> did he know the level of threat? >> let me finish the answer. we were deploying the forces. he knew we were deploying the forces. he was -- >> i hate to interrupt you. we didn't deploy any forces, did you -- >> the event was over by the time -- >> mr. secretary, you didn't know how long the attack would last. did you ever call him and say, mr. president, it looks like we don't have anything to get there anytime soon? >> the event was over before -- >> is lasted almost eight hours. my question to you is, during that eight hour period, did the president show any curiosity about, hough is this going, what kind of assets do you have helping these people? did he ever make that phone call? >> there is no question in my mind president of the united states was concerned about american lives. >> well, all due respect i don't believe that's a credible statement if he never called and
asked you are we helping these people? >> so mike huckabee on how he thinks the president handled this one. >> remember the ad in the 2008 campaign, the phone rings at the white house at 3:00 in the morning. well, the phone rang, and it rang and rang and nobody answered. this is an outrageous dereliction of duty on the part of the president. who was it that made the decision you don't engage, the president and the secretary of state? because martin dempsey affirmed that neither was she involved in conversations. the president negotiation, decided he needed a good night's sleep because he was going to vegas the next day for a fundraiser. the track is this eight-hour attack taking place in benghazi, and we're just now, five months after the event, just finding out the reason we never got a photograph is because there wasn't one of him on the phone. he wasn't on the phone. >> surprised to hear him say there was juan phone call made
and he wasn't sure when or how long it lasted, and the one to secretary of state hillary clinton as well. shocking. >> it is shocking and it ought to continue to get a lot of attention on capitol hill, and to me it's a great indication of why democrats and republicans alike ought to be outraged and questions need to be asked. >> one other question to secretary panetta was, how come be didn't send assets? he said it would take 18 hours. well, we had assets in tripoli. should it take 18 hours to get assets from tripoli to benghazi. >> and you can always scramble fighter jets, only if they fly over at 200 feet and scare the daylights out of whoever is attacking. they don't know if they're going to drop bombs or soldiers. there are things that seems to me as a civilian could have been done, should have been done, and would have been done had somebody been paying attention.
>> the white house released a list of sequester scare tactics. a couple of things. 2100 fewer food inspectors. right? inspectors, inspections. 70,000 school kids may be kicked off of head start. 10,000 teacher jobs at risk. four million meals on wheels for seniors. boy, that sounds scary. >> you know what? it's a great opportunity to remind people that the president has refused to show the leadership necessary to bring members of the house and the senate together. hadn't been a budget since the 2nd of april 2009, since harry reid wouldn't put one on the floor you. can't blame the republicans for this. democrats own two pieces of three that make government work. the republicans happen consistently passed budgets, attempted to put things before the president and before the senate. harry reid won't bring it up and the president has time to do is go out and blame republicans for what's wrong this. may happen. it will hurt a lot of people.
